Wierd RAM issue, stable/unstable

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I currently have the set up below.

I just upgraded from 2gb of crucial ballistix to 4gb.

B4 i used to run orthos STABLE, and now when i run it with all 4 gb of ram (even hto only 33xxmb is visible) It doesnt last 5 minutes.

So i figure 1 must be bad, in the process of elimination I took out 1 stick at a time and see how it does in orthos, and they all ran fine with 3gb of ram, no matter which one i took out.

any ideas? or is this just vista.

It can be both XP or Vista, aslong it's 32bit. Because you have 32bit version of Vista, it only sees 33xx GB. If you want the 4 Gb to work properly, you must have XP or Vista 64bit version.

i already know that. Thats not the problem. The problem is that I cant figure out why its unstable with all 4 sticks of ram. and stable with 3, no matter which 3. So i know all 4 works, just not stable all together at once

I think it's not stable because 32bit don't support 4 gb. That simple, but correct me if I'm wrong.
